High Flying Canines

Wow! Some dogs can really fly! This past weekend extreme canine athletes competed in the Teva Mountain Games in Vail, Colorado. Rouser launched himself 24 ft 7 inches off a dock in pursuit of a toy and won the air distance jump competition. Another high flying pooch, Jet, clinched the vertical jump competition by leaping 6 ft 2 inches off the ground and then went on to win the speed-retrieve competition.

Here's a video of Georgia competing in the air distance jump competition.

Here are some fun videos of dogs competing at other events:

If your pooch likes to run, jump and follow directions, check out the Dock Dogs website. With training and practice, your pooch could break the world record for Outdoor Big Air Jump now held by Country, who jumped 28 feet 10 inches on October 9, 2005.
